Explorations in the Sit-Tee Desert and Discovery of the Great Temple of the Bull and Bear

£250.00

Product description

A Comic Account of the Supposed Discovery of the Ruins of the London Stock Exchange some 2000 Years hence.

This is a rare book.

It has five inserted plates with illustrations by Gould plus seven illustrations in the text, original pictorial tan cloth, front panel stamped in brown and gold, rear panel stamped in brown, white endpapers with floral pattern printed in green. First edition. "A delightful satire supposedly written on April 1, 3999, which describes the discovery of certain ruins near the river Thamisis (the site of ancient Bab-y-london) by Professor Gorilla."

In good condition. There is some small spots of dark marking to the green cloth cloth board cover, a few light scratches on the rear cover and bumping to the spine and corners. The FFEP has come away from the binding and also has a former owner's name written in ink on it. The pages within have a small amount of foxing, but overall clean and in very good condition. The binding is slightly loose, but the rest of the pages are still very much intact. Overall a rare book, in good condition.
